Including official mouselook and widescreen support.
Warsaw, September 22 - System Shock, the breakthrough FPS/RPG hybrid - one of the most influential video games ever produced - is back and enhanced, as Night Dive Studios unleashes yet another long-lost piece of gaming history on GOG.com.
On release, System Shock forever changed the face of action gaming - it ushered an era of storytelling, choices, and RPG elements - directly influencing all-time classics like Deus Ex and Bioshock. Today, the legend returns in better shape than ever.
"With System Shock: Enhanced Edition, we're implementing game-changing improvements, including mouselook, widescreen, and a high resolution display mode," says Stephen Kick, CEO of Night Dive Studios. "The classic game has never been more accessible to a modern audience."
The re-release supports resolutions up to 1024x768 (compared to the original 640x480), and a native 854x480 widescreen mode. Gameplay was also streamlined with a toggleable mouselook mode, including more intuitive inventory and item management. Combined with assorted bug-fixes and remappable controls, System Shock is now truly enhanced.
Some gaming experiences are truly worth preserving. Gamers can also return to the authentic 90's gameplay with System Shock: Classic - ready for modern systems, completely unaltered in all other aspects. Both releases are available in a single package, with a 40% discount for all System Shock 2 owners on GOG.com - and 20% off for everyone. The discounted offer will last until Tuesday, September 29, 6:59 AM GMT.

They're going to wind up harming consumer friendly service models as much as they will punish the bad ones. And I feel like stuff like SWBF2 will be appropriately punished by the market. (5 Hours ago)

@GriftGFX: No no. They say: yes it is gambling, but we have to investigate further hoW EA does it to determine if it's gambling. It's a weird interview. (11 Hours ago)
They're probably struggling to understand how it's different from a variety of other products on their shelves. (12 Hours ago)
